As recent empty nesters, my husband and I make a lot of our own meals. I’ll cook dinner for a larger group on Sunday’s (here’s some of those meals), but the rest of the week, my husband is on his own, and so am I.

It’s worked well for us, as our meals are fairly simple. Usually just a protein and vegetable, that we would put together in under 15 minutes.

But, this dinner I made last night for the both of us, as my husband was outside doing yard work all day, and I had an idea for a flavorful skillet of chicken, zucchini, and carrots.

He was delighted! In fact, I may end up writing down more dinner recipes for two if you want to see more! For now, I’ll tag them with ‘recipe for two‘, and you’ll be able to find them as I publish them.

I have to say, this is one we will be making again. It was husband approved and SO satisfying.
ALSO, this entire dinner took less than 15 minutes to prepare! (even with cutting veggies)

How to make this Chicken Skillet Dinner

Ingredients – Makes 2 Servings

  • Chicken breasts
  • Carrots, sliced
  • Zucchini, sliced
  • Soy sauce
  • Shredded cheese
  • Green onions

How to Prepare

Cube chicken breasts. Heat a skillet on medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Once hot, add the chicken (without crowding the chicken) and cook until no longer pink. I did it in two steps because I used a small skillet. Remove chicken. 

Spray skillet again and add the carrots and zucchini. Cook until soft, about 4-5 minutes.
Return the chicken to the pan. Add the soy sauce and mix thouroughly.

Sprinkle with cheese and green onions and keep on the heat until cheese is melted.
Then, enjoy!

  1. I haven’t tried this yet, but I would love it if you did add more to the Meals for Two location, as I have a few up my sleeve but it seems so hard to find things that are healthy but are in align with us both eating quite healthy. Some leftovers are good for the next day but not for day 3.. lol. In fact, we even share a meal every time we go out for dinner. At any rate, I will be adding this recipe as one of our go to’s. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
